    It will be interesting to see their reaction when they get presented with the cleanup bill from NR. Who, I hope, will charge them not just for clearing the site - getting rid of the logs, removing the stumps, etc - but for the replanting that will need to happen as well. There's a figure in that article of £25-30k. I hope it's more than that.

    not to mention trespass on the railway is an offence, criminal damage is an offence, conspiracy to commit criminal damage...

    And presumably conspiracy to commit criminal damage is an offence...

    I hope they all have to put their houses up for sale to afford the bills/fines.

    So did a lot of people on here think the residents came into that kind of money by being nice people? :confused:

    People from Clifton and Montpelier are noted for being particularly nice locally. The Cities favs you might call them.

    It will not only be the residents in trouble, but the tree surgeons too.

    We can only hope...

    You'd think a tree surgeon, of all people, would be reasonably au fait with the question of liability and trespass...not to mention leaving the site in safe condition. Safe, in this case, being by the standards of the landowner, viz. National Rail, who are likely to be a bit more anal about it than "Ahhhhh, it'll be fine..."

    There's something so utterly mean-spirited about those sprinklers. If they were really desperate to keep folk out of there, they could have quietly put in a fence and gate for a similar sum and no one would have been any the wiser. And they wouldn't have wasted water OR pissed everyone off. And it's also going to freeze and old people will fall over. It's like they WANT publicity :hmm:
